Public Health Veterinary Medicine DVM/MPH

This predominantly online dual degree program allows students to combine their veterinary studies with a Master of Public Health, providing the credentials to work at the interface of human wellness and animal health. The degree is designed so you can earn your MPH degree in the same four years as your DVM degree, if you choose, by utilizing transfer credits from your veterinary curriculum, relevant field work, and public health coursework.

The MPH Veterinary Public Health program is designed for students who are enrolled in an AVMA-accredited veterinary school. If you are a practicing veterinarian, please consider the Executive Program in Public Health Program.
